We say

Chosen as this week’s BBC Introducing Track of the Week, Could I Live With Being Fake is the latest release from rising newcomer Tom A. Smith. It’s been great to watch his rise over the past nine months since we featured his brilliant debut, Wolves, in November. Along the way, the eighteen year old has picked up tastemaker support from Clash, Dork, The Times, Wonderland and Louder Than War, among others. Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer have also featured him, and BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio X, KCRW, Triple J and Amazing Radio have given his singles a spin. On the live front, Tom has supported Miles Kane, Gang Of Youths and Sunset Sons on their recent tours. Plus, he has recently supported Elton John at his BST Hyde Park show, played Glastonbury, as well as the Great Escape festival earlier this year. Tom will be opening Leeds Festival in August and will perform at Barn On The Farm today (1 July). Could I Live With Being Fake is another confident indie anthem from the young talent to add to his growing catalogue, but if you can, we really suggest you catch him live as he seriously impressed us when we saw him at the Great Escape. One to watch.
